Hello I'm developing my extension to scan some backup file, like test.zip.But it will affect the performance when a large binary file be found.Is there some setting or some advices to limit the size of response in burp settings or extension develop?

Hi You could check the Content-Length of a response before processing it, which could reduce the impact of your extension. Alternatively, using a separate thread to process the response should mean that you don't hold up any existing threads. There is not really a way to limit the size of a response in Burp. If a response exceeds a specific size, then Burp will display a warning message in the UI stating that the response is too large to display.
